If there any difference between
Java::class.java
and
Java::class
? Why sometime I need to passing the first option as a parameter but sometime I need to pass the second option?

::class
is of type
KClass
::class.java
is of type
Class
depending on which your function requires, you need to provide the correct one

The first one is only available on the JVM platform. It is the
Class<>
you’d normally use for JVM reflection. The second is a
KClass<>
, used for Kotlin-specific reflection, and is available on all platforms (including Native and JS), albeit with limited reflection functionality
